S. Tapia, Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, writes: "Periodic linear polarization pulses and circular polarization variations have been observed during the active phases in the optical light curve of VV Pup, confirming the suggestion by Bond and Wagner (IAUC 3049) that this object is similar to AM Her and AN UMa. Both polarization states reach a maximum of +16 percent in the V and B bands, with the circular polarization changing sign at the phase of the linear polarization peak."
